Our Dinner On The First Day Of CNY

On Chor Yat (1st day of CNY), we had buffet dinner at Lemon Grass Coffee House @ Shangri-La Hotel.  During major festivals, Shang card members are not entitled to the 50% discount for 2 diners.  Instead, they are only granted a 10% discount.  Despite getting only a 10% discount, the dinner was still very much cheaper than the dinner we had at Toh Yuen Chinese Restaurant @ PJ Hilton the night before.

I should not have opted for the buffet as I had eaten very little.  These days, I just don’t seem to feel hungry. My ballooning uterus must have cramped up my intestines and other organs.  It was worst during CNY when there were so many occasions of eating out.  The food at the buffet spread was really good but I just did not feel like eating  anything but still forced some grub into my tummy.  The big fresh prawns, salmon, lobsters and sashimi at the raw food counter were really good but too bad I couldn’t eat any of those.  I’m counting down to the days I can finally touch those stuff…. 2 more months to go + 1 month confinement!

What really whetted my appetite was the ice-cream corner.  I had banana yoghurt and kiwi yoghurt ice-cream (which were not sweet at all, perfect for my taste bud) whilst hubby had a bowl of delicious teppanyaki ice-cream.  The choice of condiments and toppings for the teppenyaki ice-cream was not as wide as at the Coffee House @ Westin Hotel, but it was still good enough.

First, pick your choice of ice-cream flavor.

Then, the teppanyaki ice-cream chef will mash up the ice-cream with the choice of toppings and condiments ranging from cookies to M&Ms, nuts, dried fruits, fresh strawberries and much more.

 The mashed ice-cream is then put into a bowl.  You can top up the ice-cream further with some chocolate, strawberry or mango sauce and more toppings.
